Vintage:2011 Colour:White Style:Dry
Producer:Cape Mentelle Winery
Some of Australia's finest wines are produced from this variety in the Margaret River region. Cape Mentelle Chardonnay, sourced from three vineyards within the region, is a product of traditional vinification, including partial malolactic fermentation and aging in French oak. Rich with ripe fruit and aromatic complexity, soft and supple, the wine finishes with clean acid and a balanced palate.
Ageing Potential:Drink Fresh
Ripe tropical fruit aromas with hints of butterscotch and toffee. Dry with good weight of buttery fruit on the palate. Lots of honeyed melons and ripe pears. A delicious full bodied wine, refined and elegant with style and a long lingering finish. A real and unusual classic from an excellent producer.
